Project Runway All-Stars Finale (And My Final PR Blog!)

Oh Lord, don’t cry! I just think I need to move on. Will I still watch it? Maybe. Season 10 will begin airing this summer. I know I write a lot of other blogs, but I need to put this subject to bed. Thank goodness we’re going out on a good note: SPOILER ALERT!
Season 8 runner-up Mondo Guerra finally won the big one. Why? He walked that fine line between wearable/sellable and totally creative, whereas Austin Scarlett went totally over the top and Michael Costello made his collection too commercial. Of course I’m bummed Austin didn’t win. I’ve loved him since season one, which seems now like it aired a billion years ago.
So, for one last time, picture/caption time!
(ABC lead singer Martin Fry doppleganger, Ken Downing of Nieman Marcus, scary-looking!)
(“Girl you ain’t gonna win, but I’ll help you anyway!”…good to see old Anthony again.)
(“Look, I won!” Michael thought it would be cool to also point.)
(What’s one last blog without a shot of Austin entangled in some type of frilly fabric.)
(“Hey, how about a pocket for your cervix?”
(Liza getting her hair did before the big show.)
And since I’m such a big fan of Miss Austin, let’s took a look back at his time on All-Stars…GOOD BYE!
(sorry for the alignment)

Something You Don’t Hear Everyday.

I was talking to a friend who went to see Reba McEntire in concert in Louisville last weekend and he said she performed her famous duet “Does He Love You” with tour mate Lee Ann Womack; well, he said Womack couldn’t hold a candle to Reba’s original duet partner, Linda Davis.  And he was right!  Rough.  Rather than torture you with that recent concert version, the clip above is a true gem.  When I looked up “Does He Love You” on Wikipedia, I knew Kelly Clarkson had performed the song with Reba on TV and on tour, but before that tidbit, I discovered Liza Minnelli and Donna Summer covered the song for Liza’s 1996 album, Gently.  WHAT?  Oh you know I immediately surfed to YouTube and I found it!!!!  And it’s really good.  Who knew two of my favorite singers/divas covered one of my favorite songs?  Win all around!  See what you think.  Have a fantastic weekend!

When Tonys Attack!

I admit, I rarely watch the Tony Awards, even though I love theater and musicals…well, me and my family watched the beginning musical montage, which included Elton John–BILLY ELLIOT won huge!–Dolly Parton with the 9 TO 5 cast, Liza (insert your own joke here) who sounds like she grunts now more than sings…

Well right before Stockard Channing broke into a song from PAL JOEY, Poison performed on behalf of ROCK OF AGES and they lipsynched, even CC’s guitar solo was fake…then this happened…

We didn’t see it on the first run…a friend brought it to my attention later in the night…I think I was distracted by Channing’s face–YIKES!–word from backstage was Bret was “just fine”, but damn, was that a spill!…he apparently missed the instructions to jump on the riser with the rest of the band and he didn’t see the back drop fastly approaching…I’m not sure the rest of Poison would’ve been that disappointed to see Bret almost get killed, but I digress…


Publicist Joann Mignano says Michaels, who performed with his 1980s hair-metal band Poison, fractured his nose and had to get three stitches in his lip. She says he was getting a CAT scan on Monday as a precaution, as he’s had a past neck injury.
